Re: yum local repo question

Hi,
I'm using a fedora9 edition on my desktop
i have a limited internet connection. I want to get the links of updates from my fedora installed desktop and download updates from a different computer (not fedora installed) and then i will copy *.rpm packeges to /var/cache/yum/... (optinal to repo)
So how  can i get the (just) links of needed update packages???

You can keep a copy of /var/cache/yum of a server, and NFS mount it, then create the links. If you do this for multiple machines you can copy anything they download to the common repository.

Mount the common repository: mount -o ro,soft server:/export/FC9 /mnt/FC9

Now create symbolic links with a script. I have the script, but it's on a machine down for the holiday, and I don't have "wake on question" so I can't boot it from here. This is typed by hand, and is a guide only.

CMN=/mnt/FC9
VAR=/var/cache/yum

# cd and create links
cd $CMN
find */packages -type f |
while read pkg; do
 if [ ! -x $VAR/$pkg ]; then
  # create the directory if missing (for add new repo)
  dir=${pkg%/*}
  [ -d $VAR/$dir ] || mkdir -p $VAR/$dir
  # symbolic link the package
  ln -s $CMN/$pkg $VAR/$pkg
 fi
done

Hope this is what you are looking for
